The hidden cure for heavy metals mercury and lead poisoning toxicity? Potassium Nitrate chelation


We've been thinking about heavy metals all wrong.

Our thought has been "heavy metals stick to sulfur in proteins. Therefore we must make special sulfur molecules that "grab on" really hard to heavy metals to remove them. Lets call them chelators"

This is backwards from what we want to do. First of all metals make it into the body in ionic (dissolved) form. What then happens is that while the liver or kidneys try to excrete them, or they just hang around in the body too long, they get reduced out of the ionic form and precipitate into metallic deposits. These metallic deposits are what we need to target. However chelators can only get at the ionic (dissolved) form. So chelators will never remove your heavy metal burden. Make sense?

Alright. Now the question becomes "how can we dissolve the metallic deposits in the body?" Surprisingly I believe I am the first person to actually ask the right question. Finding the right question is infinity more important than getting a correct answer.

Surprisingly I also believe I am one of the only people who could discover the answer to that question reasonably quickly. The answer is nitrates. For a chemist who knows nothing about biology that answer should be on the tip of their tongue. Their innocent mind hadn't been polluted by big pharma propaganda.

So how would nitrates work to dissolve the heavy metal deposits? Well let me tell you a quick story. For my own personal use I bought some Iron nitrate; to work on dissolving graphite into graphene. The graphene and hence iron nitrate was going to be used to make wootz steel that I was interested in. However it just took too much fuel to make and I don't live in a forest with infinite wood to burn so I shelved the project as well as iron nitrate. But this was before I had nitric acid and I wanted to dissolve some vanadium as a supplement and I had the bright idea of using the iron nitrate to help dissolve it. It worked and I took some of my solution. Only problem was it took lots and lots of iron nitrate just to dissolve a little bit of vanadium. I didn't think anything of it until I took some and I started noticing heart palpitations and lightheadedness and seeing red shapes and hallucinations when I closed my eyes. I took bunches of sodium sulfate and vitamin C and it slowly subsided and I came back to functionality. I realized the iron nitrate was lab grade (since I originally bought it not for food use but for making steel) I freaked out and realized I probably mercury poisoned myself since mercury is a common contaminant in iron nitrate.

Well it has been several months from that episode and while I am pretty much back to normal, I still get heart palpitations/skipping a beat regularly now which is not normal for me so I know I still have some residual mercury in my body. Sulfate is what attaches strongly to mercury but taking large doses of sodium sulfate over long periods of time just hasn't done it for me. But what should have been obvious to me is that there is only one reason why lots of mercury could make it into the iron nitrate; because nitrate (nitric acid) dissolves mercury and lead and arsenic and everything else so well. Then it dawned on me; if dirty nitrate could get mercury into my system so well, then clean nitrate could get it out. A couple days ago I started taking sizable doses of potassium nitrate and I am noticing some dramatic improvements, my heart skips a beat much less frequently and with less intensity when it does. *edit* the nitrate didn't cure it really but I think it is a part of the puzzle. Taking dilute phosphoric acid extracted hibiscus flowers seems to be helping too. So tannic acid binds iron so I may have been iron toxic too.

Heavy metals need to be oxidized to be dissolved and sulfur reduces them, the opposite. The body does use nitrate as an oxidant and it is most likely catalyzed by sulfate (sulfuric acid) so both of these are important to have in the body.

I get my potassium nitrate from seedranch: https://www.etsy.com/listing/218876684/saltpeter-potassium-nitrate-food-grade?ref=shop_home_active_2

I get sodium sulfate from dudadiesel: http://www.dudadiesel.com/choose_item.php?id=10ssf

I love both of these companies! Great products.

Ionic calcium phosphate reverses soft tissue calcification, and don't take calcium with food

This is counter-intuitive right? We are told that everyone gets too much calcium and that is why we get calcification of soft tissues and heart attacks and things like that. We are also told that vitamin D increases calcium absorption. Well that is all ignorant BS. Not only bloggers... but presumed "doctors" and "scientists" say these things. All of these "experts" need a big slap in the face by chemistry (and basic biology).

Vitamin D

First of all vitamin D does not improve calcium absorption. The idiot scientists who put this out need to be tried in a court of law because they know this is BS and are laughing about it. Only people ignorant of basic chemistry would fall for this. The study everyone cites to claim this is the case people were given calcium carbonate, milk, and calcium carbonate with vitamin D. They used calcium excretion (calcium in the urine) to determine absorption. First of all this is a bad way to measure absorption, even worse than looking at the blood. So the biology is something is absorbed from the gut and transported to the blood. from the blood it can be integrated into tissues or be excreted (bile, urine, sweat, etc). So first of all even if they tested the blood they wouldn't know how much was integrated into tissues or how much was coming out of tissues. Unless they used radioactive calcium so they know where it came from, they don't know whether the blood calcium is coming from the tissues, went into the tissues, or was there from the supplementation. But they used something even worse, urine. Urine has all the problems as the blood above but adds more problems. The other problems are that the calcium could have stayed in the blood, could have been integrated into tissues, could have come out of tissues, or could have been reabsorbed out of the urine in the kidney before excreted.

So anyway a good scientist with a basic knowledge of biology would be able to navigate these waters by good experimental design. this paper had terrible design. The results were that milk calcium was "absorbed" least. Better was calcium carbonate, and much better was the calcium carbonate+vitd group. the truth is likely the opposite, the milk group probably had the most calcium added to the bones, calcium carbonate worse, and calcium carbonate+vitD much worse. Why do I say that? Because much more calcium is being EXCRETED from the body in the vit D group! Knowing basic biology this makes sense; vitamin D stimulates osteoclast activity...osteoclasts break down bones and lead to excretion of calcium!

So now we can explain why the vitamin D group excreted more calcium, because vitamin D causes bones to be broken down. Now we need to look at real bioavailability. Any chemist-biologist would know that you need to dissolve minerals fully in order for them to be absorbed. This only happens about 10% to calcium carbonate in the stomach acid. And that is if you take it with food. You should NOT take calcium with food though as calcium and magnesium both inactivate digestive enzymes. So taking calcium carbonate on an empty stomach you are only absorbing about 5%. Vitamin D is a fat and simply will not help calcium to dissolve which is the rate limiting step. Yes vitamin D upregulates calbindin which effects calcium absorbtion in the gut HOWEVER calbindin needs ionic calcium to bind! It cannot bind calcium carbonate or whatever other forms. It must be ionic. So you cannot improve calcium carbonate absorption with vitamin d because making the calcium carbonate dissolve is the problem.

Milk

Now, why was less calcium excreted from milk? Because the milk calcium went to the bones instead of the urine! Milk contains lots of phosphorous which is required to build bones.

Correct Calcium supplementation reverses calcification

Alright so now why does taking ionic calcium phosphate reverse soft tissue calcification? Its simple. When you don't have enough calcium what does your body want to do? Hold on to all of the calcium it can. Makes sense right? You don't want to be generous with calcium if you don't have enough for yourself. So calcium is not broken down in the body. This happens system wide; even though your body should get rid of soft tissue calcifications to feed it to the bones the body honestly isn't that sophisticated. It uses hormones to regulate calcium and hormones go throughout the body. So for your body to tell your bones to not break down calcium, soft tissues get the same message unfortunately. So it would make sense that when you get enough calcium then your body loosens its grip on the mineral and you start to dissolve soft tissue calcifications. This is exactly what I have seen. I have been taking magnesium, silica, even vitamin d in the past and I have always had a calcification in the muscle on my shin. I figured since these players, even especially silica, didn't work, then it was just too late for me, I must just be getting old. Well I added ionic calcium phosphate, and it was difficult for me to even find the calcification! it shrunk a ton and instead of hard bony feeling, it feels slick/slippery like it is dissolving. I'm sure the magnesium and especially silica I am taking is helping the process a lot, but adding the calcium was the missing ingredient. Also I have been taking no vitamin D for a while so it isn't that.

Here is the misleading calcium bio-availability paper:
